History

Algonac Cast Products is an outgrowth of E.E. Warner & Sons, a building supply firm established in 1911. Captain Warner took an active part in the business when he retired from sailing in 1920 and in 1923, a foundry was added to supply marine hardware to boat manufacturers.

The foundry was located near the site where Chris Craft Boats were first built by Chris Smith and his family around the turn of the century, and long relationships were established with other boat builders such as Gar Wood, Sea Ray and almost every boat building company in the world.

In 1946, the business was incorporated under the name of Algonac Foundry Company and in the late 1940’s moved to a new, larger building covering over 51,000 square feet of manufacturing space producing non-ferrous castings for Industrial and Marine customers.

With an huge inventory of OEM patterns, these are original – not reproductions.

After purchasing Algonac Marine Cast llc, the immediate goal was to re-kindle the OEM business that always was the economic engine of its success and at the same time continue to preserve its rich history

With a current inventory of over 10,000 patterns, drawings and documentation and a completely integrated facility that includes in house pattern making, machine shop and foundry we have all the tools in place to be a valued supplier to all the current boat builders today and those parts will like all the others be valued treasures for boat restorers for many years to come.


 

We welcome your interest and hope we can be a good supplier to you as well.
